About the Project:-

The department is currently exploring the viability of establishing a greenfield Microsoft-based infrastructure environment in order to provide a secure, logical separation of access and administration for an important client group.

It is envisaged that this will include a new Microsoft Office 365 tenant along with the establishment of a number of core on-premise services. Where possible, the design should seek to leverage existing Departmental hyper-converged virtual server hosting infrastructure.

An external consulting service was engaged at the end of 2018 to provide a high-level design for the proposed environment. This department is now seeking to build on this high-level design in order to develop a detailed solution design which will be used to establish fully informed implementation costings.

About the Role:-

The Solution Architect will report directly to the Director and will be required to develop a detailed solution design for the proposed new environment. This design will use the already developed high level design as its base.

The detailed design will include all required Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Azure, and on-premise servers/services along with detailed Active Directory design including required cross-forest trust relationships.

The successful candidate will have experience in the following technology domains:

  • Microsoft Office 365
  • Microsoft Active Directory and Microsoft Azure Active Directory
  • Microsoft Exchange (hybrid) and Microsoft Windows Server 2016
  • Microsoft Windows 10
  • Microsoft InTune and System Centre Configuration Manager
  • Nutanix hyper-converged infrastructure or similar virtualised technology platform

The successful candidate will have the following attributes:

  • Proven ability in driving an effective hybrid infrastructure solution design covering all layers of solution architecture including application, technology, information and role based security architectures
  • Outstanding communication skills, with an ability to effectively consult and negotiate with stakeholders (internal and external) and build positive relationships
  • Outstanding written communication and ability to develop detailed infrastructure diagrams for technical audiences
  • Ability to prioritise, schedule and perform work to meet deadlines, commitments and work within a self-directed environment and with ambiguity
  • 5+ years demonstrated previous experience with infrastructure solutions architecture, business and systems requirements, and technical design and analysis in a complex technical environment which spans a large number of client sites.

The key responsibilities for the role include:

  • Translate business needs for ICT systems into coherent and effective technical options to deliver a detailed design specification aligned with business requirements.
  • Partner with key stakeholders and external suppliers/vendors developing strategic working relationships to ensure solutions are aligned to Company ICT Strategy, Queensland Government ICT Strategy, relevant architectural standards, principles and roadmaps, and the previously developed high-level design.
  • Develop the conceptual, logical and physical models to ensure alignment to the enterprise standards
